Looks good, do the 99 spec front bars have park lights? I've just recently got my 99 spec bar waiting to be fitted, I thought they'd be in with the side indicators but they're not.

Getting myself confused there. I have a indicator/park light lamp where my fog lights should be. Neve put much thought as to why until now. I'll do some reading up on that. Thanks for clearing that up Glenn.

I increased the wattage of my Fog / driving lamps from 35watt to 55watt which has made a big difference and yes my Park lamps are incorporated in to the driving lamps, the US has the Park lamps in with the indicator lamps.

Few questions. Did you use the lower support foam and retainer? Do you need to? Is it better to paint the front fascia before fitting or does it not matter.

I didnt use the lower support foam and retainer, doesnt appear that you need it, although I have them on order and will install them when they arrive (might help if I hit anymore possums).
I had the front fascia painted before I installed it, I was lucky it fitted perfectly but in hindsight I think I would test fit it first then remove for painting. My painter prefers to paint it off the car even though we resprayed the car.

Another question on the park lights/foglights, so when turning on the park lights foglights come on right? So park/fog light knob and button wired to the same lights?

The Park lights are incorporated in the fog lights, on mine the park lights come on with the headlight switch where you turn once for park and then turn further for headlights, the fog lights are a separate switch on the right side cluster and that turns the fog lights on.
Hope that makes sense

The following users say thank you to jimmeyz for this useful post:

All is not lost

The first Z32 I owned had the park lamps in the indicator assemblies on the bumper
(I thought this actually looked better)

You could potentially use a park/tail lamp holder & bulb in the indicator lamp to convert it to park/indicator
use the 5w part of the bulb for the park lamp, 21w for indicator.

Otherwise there are LED strips that could be inserted inside the spot lights to do a nice tidy conversion (actually I like this idea – might do this to mine!!)

Yeh I was thinking of getting those led strips in a vertical line in the side indicators

I have some indicator assemblies on the bumper with provision for park lamps. Have a look at my post in the private sale forum, if any good to you we can come to deal.
